Remember the good old days when it was Apple versus Samsung? Well now it looks like LG is after Samsung after all, and given that both Korean companies are competitors, we guess it isn’t too surprising. It has been reported that LG will be suing Samsung over the use of OLED displays, claiming that Samsung had infringed upon seven OLED related patents owned by LG. The devices named by the lawsuit include the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Galaxy S2 HD, the Galaxy S3, the Galaxy Note, and the Galaxy Tab 7.7. LG has filed the lawsuit in the Seoul Central District Court and as expected, they are seeking damages and a permanent injunction on the devices named.
No word on how Samsung will respond to this latest lawsuit, but this isn’t the first time LG and Samsung have gone after each other, with the latter company having accused LG of having facilitated an OLED tech leak in the past and has looked for an injunction on LG’s products as well. We’re not sure if this lawsuit will be brought overseas to international courts, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled so stay tuned for more updates.
